    After a few months in the making, it’s finally here… The Planner’s Planner Podcast for Event Professionals, sponsored by us, Metropolis Productions!

    Any event needs good planning. It’s fundamental to ensuring it all works smoothly. But it’s not always easy to get good information on it. And it’s certainly not easy to get it in useful, bite-sized chunks that you can listen to during downtime such as travelling to and from gigs. That’s why we’re excited to be launching the Planner’s Planner Podcast.

    Keeping you abreast of the latest trends

    We love podcasts, they’re such a fantastic way of keeping up to date with the latest industry trends and best practices. This new service is aimed at everyone with an interest in the events industry, from people trying to grab their first break, right through to seasoned professionals at big companies who are looking for a way to stay current. We’ll be conducting interviews and discussions with people right across the world, so there’s definitely going to be something in here for everyone.

    Creating a sense of community

    We’re seeing this as more than just a useful resource. We want to use it to help bring the thousands of self-employed professionals out there together, giving them a platform to come back to and learn from. Working alone can get lonely, and we want to bring more points of view into people’s day, creating a sense of community and starting discussions.

    We’re all planners

    We’re all planners, and we all work with other planners. Whatever part of the events industry you work in, you’ll be touched by the need for good planning. So we hope this new service, full of great information, debates and discussion, is really going to get people excited. Check out our first Planner’s Planner Podcast here.

    We’d love your feedback… and equally if you know anyone who would be great interview, please send them our way!

      The year’s off to a good start for us on Planner’s Pod! This week we are joined by our good friend James Tosslle the sole proprietor of two complimentary companies that serve important key roles in the events industry.
      The first one is Entertec, a professional audio company that provides speakers, mixing desks, P. A. systems and everything associated to making people nice and loud in venues and events. Second is a trucking company called J.T. Event Truck which makes sure that the equipment gets there safely and provide the logistics and transport for the events industry.
      James is quite an entrepreneur and he’s done some pretty staggering stuff over the years. In this episode, he shares us his experiences on how he got into the sound engineering industry at a very early age and how he paved the way for himself to where he is now.

      PP022 | Nick Ingram | Lifting The Curtain On Bespoke Music For The Events Industry

      Hello and welcome to a brand new year with us here on Planner’s Pod! We have lots of new and exciting things in store for all of you and we do hope you stay with us as we unveil them.

      In this episode, we decided to start things up by having Metropolis’ very own Nick Ingram, our Creative Director, for the first time here on the show. Many of you have been curious and have asked us about how we do things in the company. So, what better way to open this up for discussion than having a team member on board.

      Here we discuss the ins and outs of how to manage a live-band company, what sort of sticky situations we all get into and how we try to deal with those, as well as how to engage with clients and knowing them on a personal level to give them a unique and wonderful musical experience during their event.
